arranged marriges was used most places in the world 100 years agaio but in the last 75 most places have stoped using it. But the english turdichion
has a twist .Instead of the man paying for the bride the brides family gave the man a dowery .(money lands ) to marry the girl .The idea being a man
had to suport a woman so the family would give this dowery to give him insentive to marry the girl.
Ps Im american and I aranged my marrege .(worked out quite nicly I mite add me and my wife get along better then anyone I know.
